Teen arrested after carjacking

January 11, 2011

A teen is in police custody after a north-side Indianapolis man said he was carjacked at gunpoint early Tuesday morning. The man said he was getting out of his car at the Lake Nora apartment complex when he was approached by the suspect and two other males just after 12:30 a.m. The suspects took the man’s wallet and car keys before driving off. Seconds after the victim called 911, a police officer patrolling the Broad Ripple area spotted the victim's car. The 17-year-old driver was apprehended after a brief car chase, but the other two suspects fled the scene on foot.
